Micron says this is the place Jennifer Minnich Asst. Senior News Editor Utah County has been selected to be the new home of Micron Technology Inc. Micron will build a $1.3 billion sernicon-ductor plant that will provide 3500 new job opportunities. The computer chip company, based in Boise, Idaho, chose Utah County over Omaha, Nebraska and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma for a host of reasons. Micron officials went through a very thorough selection process to determine where the best place would be for them to build. The final decision for the location is in Lehi, on 2,400 acres of land where they will build their $1.3 billion memory chip manufacturing plant. The facility will consist of four, 250,000-square-foot buildings, and will require $800 million to build and will actually only be located on 200 of those 2,400 acres. The rest of the land offers potential for expan- 2002 Ryan MillerThe College Times As the countdown for the Olympics bid continues, both advocates and opposers stand firm.

The site for Micron is located on the east side of Interstate 15 and north of SR 72, the highway which connects Highland to the interstate.Some of the main reasons that Utah County was chosen are: close proximity to top-quality engineering programs at Brigham Young University and the University of Utah, a highly educated labor pool drawn from Utah county and Salt Lake City, and Utah's See MICRON, Page 5 Team 4U2 sweeps primaries Tyson Lex Wheatley Editor in Chief In the student government election primaries which Student Body President Shad Sorenson called, "the closest race I've ever seen," Team 4U2 party members received the most votes in each category securing themselves a spot in the final elections. Terry Ann Harward, Ryan Howell and Phil Clegg from Team 4LP say it's an honor to pass the primaries but know there is still work to do. "It's (the primaries) a hurdle, but it's not the finish," said Harward, "we've still got to let the students know what we stand for." Two members from The Unified Party, John Darrington and Bivechanna Malla, also passed the primaries in the categories of President and Activities Vice President respectively. However, an hour after being informed of her passing, Malla chose to withdraw from the election. Due to Malla's withdrawal, Tiffany Austill, the third highest vote receiver for Activities Vice President and Team 4 You and UVSC member will take her place. Craig Judd, from The Bottom Line passed the primaries in the category of Academics Vice President. "It's going to be tough leaving Neal and Michelle behind," said Judd, "but I know that their support is backing me 100 and I'm going to win for those guys." Judd will join forces with Unified Party member Darrington and Team 4 You and UVSC member Austill and campaign for the final elections. "I'm relieved," said Darrington, "yetthere is still a lot of stress. The numbers indicate that we need to regroup and get ready for another two days of campaigning." See PRIMARIES, Page 6 UVSC administrator speaks at Harvard conference Kodye Brown Staff Writer Khando Chazotsang, assistant to the Director of the Center for International Studies, spokeatawomen'sconferenceheldatHarvard University on March 3-4, 1995. Chazotsang approached the conference attendees with the issue of Refugee and Displaced Women; their struggles and victories today and in the future. Her knowledge of this subject is greatly attributed to her first-hand experience dealing with refugee women. She was among the members of the Tibetan government who fled to India to escape being governed by communist rule. Formerly the General Secretary of Information and International Relations, her new focus became education, rehabilitation, and economic developmental programs. She helped many refugee women create new lives for themselves. "I worked with many women who were suffering, and I learned that with the right attitude, one can overcome obstacles rrd go on," said Chazotsang. That positive outlook on life was exactly the idea Chazotsang presented to those at the conference. She speaks very modestly of her contribution there; she feels her gain was what she learned at the conference. "I met so many intelligent women there who had great knowledge of all women's issues," she said. "Toward Beijing" was the name and purpose of the conference, which was held in the John F. Kennedy School of Government. The women prepared and revised material for the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women: Equality, Development, and Peace, to be held in Baijing, China this year. Malan Jackson, Director of the CIS, said, "It is an honor and a privilege to have someone from our campus attend this conference to prepare for such a great event." Jackson speaks very highly of Chazotsang and considers her a great asset to the CIS.
